We have been getting on so well and have the same tastes in so many things.

The challenge is going to come further down the line as she has told me that she wants to be with somebody who she can get married to and have a family with.

I want to concentrate on my career and see the world. I’m worried telling her will cause us to break up, which is the last thing I want.

How do I tell her?
